The trade deadline is expected to be a quiet one for the Pistons, as it has been in recent years, but there is an outside chance the Pistons get involved to a lesser degree. It's no secret the Lakers are interested in acquiring a point guard at the deadline and one report says that the Lakers might just have their eye on Will Bynum:

I am hearing that, if no other deal can be made before the deadline, the team will look to swing a smaller trade for a point guard in the 11th hour. Two names the Lakers are closely monitoring are Will Bynum of the Detroit Pistons and A.J. Price of the Indiana Pacers. Bynum particularly is a favorite of Mitch Kupchak's for his explosiveness and ability to create shots for others.

Bynum, who signed a three-year deal before last season, is all but out of the Pistons' plans at this point. He was injured earlier in the season and since returning has not been able to play his way back into head coach Lawrence Frank's rotation -- D-league call up Walker Russell sees burn over Bynum now. It's just too bad the Pistons weren't trying to increase Bynum's trade value by letting him play in a lost season.
